Digital health has become a real buzz word in recent discussions about transforming the healthcare system. One driver for digitization of healthcare are startups. Startups are newly emerging companies with a new business model that identifies a certain problem and tries to fix it. This essay sheds light on the role of digital health startups with respect to the healthcare system. Digital health startups can be found in all areas and all degrees of digitization: from digital presentation of analogue content to deep learning with processing of and reaction to incoming information. When comparing the U.S. with Germany, the economic ecosystem of the U.S. is much more attractive for digitization as well as for startups. Nevertheless, the German startup-scene is catching up. As digitization in healthcare is a relatively new trend, it will change the art of providing health care. To foster innovation in healthcare through digital health startups some regulation must be changed.
